Diversity and the nonprofit sector’s struggles with it are on the minds of many young nonprofit professionals these days. With that in mind, YNPN Twin Cities made it a priority this year to carve out space to have those conversations. We kicked it off a couple months back with a very in-demand event about Race and Privilege in the Nonprofit Sector. And on June 1, we moved it online—cohosting the monthly Twitter #ynpchat (young nonprofit professionals chat) on the subject of diversity.
Some of the smartest and most dedicated young nonprofiteers around the country took to Twitter to discuss what diversity means to nonprofits, why it’s so often missing and what we can do about it. It’s an important conversation, and we’ve saved the transcript for you here. Read on for that boost of ideas and motivation to take on this issue for yourself.
